'Your old men will dream dreams and your young men will see visions.' (Joel 2:28)

"Tread softly for you tread on my dreams", said W. B. Yeats. Dreams are precious things as Joel acknowledges, and the prophets often give us a vision of what God is wanting to do. We need our dreams for sustainance, the yearning for a glimpse of God. We are to dream and then to work to turn our dreams into reality, because God will use those dreams to help build his kingdom.

Lord, sustain your dream in my heart, and give me the energy to turn my dreams into reality. Amen.
